Gala Leisure appoints Fleet Alliance to manage fleet
Gala Leisure, the bingo halls specialist, have appointed Fleet Alliance to provide a fully outsourced fleet management service for their 200 company cars.
Nottingham-based Gala Leisure, which operates around 130 bingo clubs in the UK, first appointed Fleet Alliance in 2010 to manage its fleet interests.
Jamie Brough, Head of Procurement at Gala Leisure, said: “We went through a very detailed benchmarking and review process to find the best operating model for our fleet, and concluded that the arrangement with Fleet Alliance remained fit for purpose and was very competitive.”
Fleet Alliance will be responsible for managing the existing fleet and sourcing all new vehicles using a competitive tendering approach for each new car added to the fleet, via a panel of three different funders, to indentify the most cost efficient.
The new arrangement also covers the Gala Leisure grey fleet of a further 200 vehicles, and Fleet Alliance will ensure that cash allowance drivers have appropriate business insurance and that the vehicles are maintained to manufacturer standards and service intervals.
Fleet Alliance managing director, Martin Brown, said: “We are delighted to extend our working relationship with Gala Leisure and to provide a fully outsourced fleet management service for their fleet.
“We will continue to work closely with them to manage the fleet extremely cost effectively while providing the highest level of support for their drivers.”
At the same time, as part of the new arrangement, Fleet Alliance is also rolling out its award-winning e-fleet mobile app for all Gala Leisure drivers. This will allow them to automatically input their vehicle mileage, and book servicing, maintenance and MoTs, as well as providing details of suppliers of services such as breakdown and recovery, accident management and insurers, all in one place.
